Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell Announced

Get ready to go to hell in the next Saints Row game.

Today at the Penny Arcade Expo, Deep Silver announced Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell. It’s as a standalone expansion to Saints Row IV, and will be available on the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC starting January 27, 2015. It will cost $20.

Deep Silver has also revealed that Saints Row IV is being re-released on the PS4 and Xbox One in a new edition called Saints Row IV: Re-Elected. It will include the original game and all of its DLC remastered with better graphics and audio. That will cost $30, and you can get it in a bundle with Gat Out of Hell for $50. It also arrives January 27, 2015.

As the name implies, Gat Out of Hell will see the Saints pulled down to the darkest depths of hell after playing around with a ouija board, and there will be plenty of demons to battle with zany new weapons. You’ll even be able to shoot the devil in the face! Since this is a downloadable game, it will only be about half the size of Saints Row IV. Along with the single-player campaign, you’ll also get a two-player co-op mode where you can play as Johnny Gat or Kinzie Kensington.

This will be the second game in the franchise since it was taken over by Deep Silver after original publisher THQ went under in 2012.
